Persecution in Philippines

  • Cast Number: 3
  • Run-time: 6 minutes
  • Bible Reference: Psalm 119

Persecution in Philippines. The Abu Sayyaf demand a fully independent Islamic state. With money filtered in from Lybia and the likes of Osama Bin Laden what chance does Christianity have. The martyr Stephen stood firm and gave his life for the Lord, would we?

Sample of script:

all come on stage

1: The bombings! The kidnapping! The murder! We simply can’t go on like this, afraid for our very lives. I don’t think I can take this persecution any longer.

2: I hate to admit it, we are getting nowhere. The Abu Sayyaf is too strong, too well organized. They are demanding a fully independent Islamic state, and they have the resources to make it happen.

3: But it is a small group, likely less than 1500 militants and mercenaries. They can’t stop the preaching of the word of God in Phillipines.

1: Small yes, but with strong links to big money and well-financed terrorists, like Libya and Osama bin Laden. We can’t stand up to them.

2: We are right back to where we started several years ago, when Stephen was chosen to take a leadership role here. (pauses) Stephen! What a mighty worker for the Lord he was, such eloquence as he preached throughout Manila, bringing many people to Jesus.

3: Yes, indeed, that he was! A mighty man of God.

1: Mighty and brave, but foolhardy as well. We tried to warn him to be less critical of the government. It was only a matter of time before they would seek to silence him.

3: Stephen was not one to soft-pedal or candy-coat his message of salvation. Always told it like it was. Reminds me a lot of the other Stephen, the New Testament Stephen.

2: And where did it get him? Kidnapped! And then murdered when we weren’t able to come up with the ransom that Abdurajak Janjalani and the Abu Sayyaf murderers demanded.

3: They tell that Stephen stood brave right up until the end, praying, singing hymns and praising God until his last breath of life left his beaten body.
